Very somber visit. While Dachau was not an “extermination camp” as were other camps (as informed by our tour guide), so many died as forced labor was its purpose. The torture methods horrifying: ropes tied to their arms and hoisted behind their backs. Had to...More

Sobering, but necessary tour for all people. Currently reading War and Remembrance by Herman Wouk. Wish I would have read it before visiting. Tour requires lots of walking. Give yourself plenty of time to absorb it all.

I was surprised that this place is not so depressive as I expected, but maybe it is due to the fact that I was never in Auschwitz. Anyway, I can recommend to visit this place. there are many historical artifacts from Nazi era.

There isn’t a charge to tour the grounds but you can rent an audio guide for I think 3€. I don’t think there are guides on site but you can find some online to hire for the day. It depends on how much time you want to spend... More
